- Excellent Mower
Excellent Mower I chose this mower because it has a Honda engine and my previous experience of Honda engines has been very good.
It has an automatic choke, which I was a little apprehensive about, but actually works very well. I particularly like the folding handle, which saves space during storage, the single action numbered wheel adjustment, which makes for quick and accurate height adjustment; the powerful engine and the plug-in grass box.
Having used the mower all through last summer I am, to date, very satisfied with it and would certainly recommend it.
- I Agree with Others, a Nice Bit of Kit
I Agree with Others, a Nice Bit of Kit Very popular mower and as such I had to wait some weeks for the next production run to come into stock. However it seems to have been worth the wait. Only used it once so far, but I was amazed that I put oil in the machine then the petrol and it started first pull.
Loads of power and in fact took a while to get used it compared to the old smaller mower I have been using.
- A Very Efficient and Well-made Lawn Mower
A Very Efficient and Well-made Lawn Mower I agree with the other reviews that the mower is heavy, however it therefore sits well in its path and cuts beautifully straight lines. The build quality is superb and the added bonus of being able to flush it out afterwards means a clean efficient collection for the next time it is used. It makes a big difference having just one handle for height adjustment.
Overall I am very pleased with this purchase and it is certainly the best mower we have owned!
- A Quality Mower
A Quality Mower The mower arrived & the box was extremely heavy , I opened and could see that this was a quality machine with clear instructions , engine oil & other parts.
My first use was very impressive. As other reviews suggest due to its size & weight it does need some getting used to, however it is so easy with variable speed to walk behind & easy pull start it cuts a treat.
A nice feature is the water hose connection on the top of deck for cleaning . I should have bought 3 yrs ago instead of a cheaper machine that became unreliable .
- A Truly Outstanding Lawn Mower
A Truly Outstanding Lawn Mower As a professional contractor I have used many different makes and models of self-propelled lawnmowers over the years.
I purchased a Mountfield SP555v at the beginning of 2016 as I wanted to see how it compared to the other ‘top of the range’ Honda mowers I previously used. I also wanted to see whether it could stand up to the massive amount of use I put the mowers through on a daily basis.
I can honestly say buying the Mountfield SP555v was the best decision I have ever made for my business; not only is it powerful but it is incredibly robust and economical.
The Twin Clip blade really makes a massive difference to the cut, whether dry or wet, it is perfect every time with just one pass over the lawn. The vacuum effect this blade creates when it’s cutting is just incredible, I can say with all honesty, I have never had a mower that collects the grass so well. It comes with a large 70ltr grass collection box and boy don’t you need it because it really does pack the bag full!
As a rule I am not normally a fan of mulching grass, as all of the self-propelled mowers I have previously used either bung up or leave a line of half chopped grass behind. However, this mower does not do this because the twin clip blade cuts the grass multiple times and the 190cc Honda engine really makes a big difference with this because it does not struggle when mulching up the grass.
I am 6ft 6” tall and the handle in its highest setting is perfect for me which means I no longer get a bad back from slumping over all day.
This mower has a quick release grass box which makes emptying the grass an effortless task. You can connect and release the grass box with just 1 hand and this really does save a lot of time if you have a large lawn.
The variable speed control on this model is very effective and easy to use when manoeuvring in and around obstacles or just adjusting it to your own walking speed.
One thing I really like is this mower comes with an anti-vibe system which means you get almost no vibrations up through the handles. If you have a large lawn or you’re a contractor like me then you really notice the difference at the end of the day when your hands aren’t numb from the vibrations.
There are so many great features with this mower that I could literally be here all day. I have never owned such a robust, reliable mower and it is a world away from all the previous mowers I have owned before.
If you are a contractor or just somebody that owns a large lawn, I would truly recommend this mower for you - you won’t be disappointed!
I will be purchasing more of these for my business this year!
- An Excellent Mower for a Large Area of Grass/lawn
An Excellent Mower for a Large Area of Grass/lawn I have a lot of lawn and wanted a mower which was up to this job.
First impressions were of its strength of build and quality feel and appearance. Now I have used it for a couple of months I can confirm that my initial assessment was correct.
The Honda engine is powerful and can cope with even long grass. It starts with the first pull on the starter cord but does rock wildly for a couple of seconds before settling down to a steady rhythm. The controls for the drive and speed work smoothly and efficiently and the height adjustment for the very sturdy handle, with 3 positions, clicks into position very positively. The large grass collector also clicks into position very easily but I have had occasional difficulty removing it which is a bit frustrating.
In conclusion, I can recommend this large lawn mower for those of you who have a larger than average area to cut. It is very well made and has a superb Honda engine so it should last for a good many years.
- Awesome Mower
Awesome Mower Excellent mower for a large garden. Would highly recommend, definitely worth the money.
- Excellent Lawnmower
Excellent Lawnmower I had to replace a very old Mountfield and after researching came across your website. Very impressed with the products on order and the efficiency of the web ordering system. Your after-sales service is also great, as I had to replace a small plastic mount and this was ordered without any trouble. The mower looks like it will give many years of service - I have to cut approximately 1/2 acre of lawn most of which is sloping.
- A very efficient, easy to use mower
A very efficient, easy to use mower It took a bit of time to assemble but it was easy enough. The mower is easy to use and the engine is efficient. I am not using anything like as much fuel as my previous mower, and the large capacity collector means less stops to empty it.
Good build quality, easy use, copes well with 1/2 acre garden.
- Very pleased with my purchase
Very pleased with my purchase Very pleased with performance so far; have always liked a Honda engine for reliability.
Have half acre of lawns to mow, and find this mower copes well and is easy to manage.
